There is high anticipation for the two MacBook variants that Apple has yet to unveil, the2016 MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro.
At the moment, rumors are flying on when the two will come out though there are some who believe that the 2016 MacBook Air could come out as early when Black Friday 2015 sales kick off.
Should this be the case, the timing of the release does raise some concern. One is that a release on Black Friday 2015 could see the latest MacBook Air and MacBook Pro ending up being overshadowed by great deals expected on that day, including big price-offs on previous Apple devices.
Though that is up for debate, the fact is all that Apple stands to get from such is officially unveiling the 2016 MacBook Air and nothing else.
The 2016 MacBook Air is touted to be the most powerful among the laptops Apple has right now, something that will possibly be powered by the Skylake U-chipset and running on the latest Apple operating system El Capitan.
On the other hand, the 2016 MacBook Pro is believed to be something that will come out by December. This was based on a report that a new code (AAPLJ951) found in El Capitan which many tied up to a possible launch of the said device.
Like the MacBook Air, the latest MacBook Pro offering is likely to make use of the same Intel Skylake processors.
Further serving support on the possible coming of the 2016 edition of the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro is the fact that Apple’s line of previous models haves started to go on sale.
With that in mind, Apple could be cleaning house to make room for the new models though all of these remain speculation for now.
Both devices were expected to come out as early as September and then October but unfortunately noting has materialized as we speak. The belief is that the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro were purposely held off so as not to spoil the debut of another Apple device, the iPad Pro.
So now the focus has shifted on the two missing Apple laptops which will hopefully be out before the year ends.
But going back to reality, there are a lot of neat Apple deals to check out while the two devices’ coming is still up in the air.
Previous renditions of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are being offered with freebies such as an Apple SuperDrive as well as a 50% savings on AppleCare.
Best Buy on the other hand is throwing in a $100 gift card for every MacBook Air purchase and the list goes on.
